Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coinage found nearby show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the area undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The commune as it was wasn't discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a much bigger area than only the town itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not put on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow throughout the coming years and the arrival of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop.
